I'm "It"

Well, that's what we always said if we got tagged when we were growing up. :) Anyway, Delia at The Melody Within tagged me with this tag. And I would tell you that you'd better run before I tag you, but then you wouldn't stay and read my blog now would you? So, I'll be nice and just say that if you need something to fill your blog for the day, then consider yourself tagged, otherwise, you can take a deep breath and come out from your hiding place...I saw you anyway.

So, without further ado, here are eight random facts about me, I know you've been just dying to hear.

1. As a kid, I wished that I could live with the Walton's.

2. I don't like raw cheese. I like it melted, and I will even pick frozen mozzerella off the top of a pizza, but I just can't stomach the texture of raw cheese. Execeptions: cottage cheese and cheesecake.

3. I scream when I sneeze. At least this is what my family tells me. Now if I'm out in public, I sneeze this tiny little sneeze, but I think I pop every capillary in my nose as I try to hold it in.

4. I don't like peanut butter. People act as if this is a food that EVERYBODY likes, but I'm sorry, yuck. I do however like peanuts, Snicker's bars and peanut butter cookies. Go figure.

5. I studied dance (Ballet to be exact) for 10 years. I would've studied longer, but I discovered boys. I started thinking about getting married and having a baby and how that would ruin my dancing career, so why bother? I do still have my toe shoes, and you can still see blood stains inside the toes.

6. I have broken my collar bone four times. Not always the same one. Let's just say that I can never be a swimsuit model, not that I ever would have, but at least I have a good excuse. :)

7. I keep hidden stashes of chocolate all over my house. Hershey's Kisses with Almonds, mini Heath Bars, Junior Mints. We don't drink coffee, but there is a coffee canister on our counter right between the sugar canister and the tea canister. I had that canister filled with chocolate and undiscovered by my children for three years before I got caught.

8. I am scared to ride on my husband's Harley. I do sometimes, but that is when praying without ceasing really comes into play. Plus, I really figure one of us should stay alive to raise the children.

Good for you, Shelley - you did it! And wasn't it fun, after all?

Had to laugh at your screaming sneeze, because I'm exactly the opposite. I have this tiny little sneeze, most of the time. Everybody always says, "Was that supposed to be a SNEEZE?" LOL

But every once in a great while, I'll produce this MONSTER sneeze that just about blows me away, along with anyone else who happens to be in the vicinity.

Thanks for participating! :O)

How fun! I loved reading these - and from one fellow ex-ballet dancer to another - it's those blood stains that are proof of our ability, yes?
(I am also a chocolate lover. But if I stash it, I will eat it all in one sitting...may I come to your house?)

Thanks for stopping by. I am a chocolate lover to but it loves my hips too much.
I have never broken a bone before i can't imagine breaking the same one four times.
Have a great weekend and come back to visit sometime.

Great list of facts!

Off topic: I visited your homeschool blog just now and noticed the frog dissecting post. It is part of my oldest son's biology course this year, but I'm not sure if it is "necessary". I don't know if any of us would be willing to do the dissecting. I jigged that class in school. ;-)

Hey Shelley. Chocolate stashes? I'm coming to your house! :) My kinda woman!
